Not sure if it would work on floats, but a dry erase marker will take it off.  At work we have white boards everywhere and people use permanent marker on them as a joke.  Rub over it with a dry erase marker and it magically disappears.  Again not sure if it would work on the float, but it can't hurt to try.

Classic joke.  Great advice.

Another Classic.

Enter classroom with hand cupping egg whites, sit in front row. When instructor is writing on board, loudly fake sneeze, simultaneously throw egg whites against chalkboard.

No one would notice.  They’d all be staring at their cell phones.

No, the dry erase "eats" the permanent right off.  Dry erase in my experience comes off of most hard surfaces pretty easily after that, worse case a touch of rubbing alcohol will remove it.

Paint can come off, whereas Sharpie won't. So when paint wears off, then POOF, there is your ID#.

This was my concern, Dude!   Shocked  Grin

Chemicals removed 95% of the sharpie and since I was selling the traps with the floats it had to be 100% removed.  After going through all the recommended chemical liquid concoctions on the internet, sandpaper was the outright winner.  With a bit of elbow grease the marker was quickly removed with a 100% certainty.

Erik, you know I wouldn't use your license number off the trap's you sold me Smiley
I actually bought a few of those 5" orange noodles and cut them into pieces....works perfect.
Let me know when you want to go on the boat running the line.  Easier on the back Smiley

I was prepping the traps for sale on Craigslist and Facebook marketplace so they had to removed completely.  Noodle floats definitely do the trick.  If my upcoming trips go up in flames like the 2 previous this year then I might have to take you up on that offer.  Thanks
